Gratitude

Hope. Trust.

If I were my own best friend I would remind myself to…

Hope. Trust.

***When I think of hope I think about a cloudy sky and the sun peeking over an edge or shining through the cloud cover. I am ever hopeful that the sunshine will burst through and light up the day. 

When I think of trust I also think of the sun. I trust that when it goes down at night it will be back again in the morning. I also trust that when it is behind the clouds it is still doing the work it needs to do. 

It’s kind of like open heart surgery. You hope everything will go well and there will be no complications. And you have to trust that the “sun” is doing the best job it possibly can behind the cloud cover. In all of my years working in the cardiac ICU I’ve found that most of the time the sun does come out, even though there can be some really dark and cloudy days in between.
